    Hey guys. I guess I should introduce myself before i ask my questions.

    I'm a 19 year old DC native and I just recently started training with http://www.arnisdc.com/. I am a Black Belt in Tae Kwon Do (studied it for 10 years) and have been training in Capoeira for about two months.

    Here are my questions:

    I'm moving to NYC in mid-August and I need to find an Arnis/Kali/Eskrima studio to study at. If possible, I would like to find a decentley competitive studio (Competitive as in tournaments). I was quite competitive in Tae Kwon Do and wish to continue competing in Arnis. So basically, can anyone recomend an Arnis/Eskrima/Kali Studio in NYC? I'll be living in Manhattan.

    Secondly, what are some good conditioning/training drills? My instructor has given me some, but any other help would be great.

    Just FYI, I have 30" Medium Weight Sticks.

    Any help is great help!

    There's a lot of FMA in the NYC area! We have several people from the region on the site. If you're willing to consider other than Modern Arnis you should also ask in the General forum here!

    I find a B.O.B. really useful for my solo training, and swinging sticks is always good conditioning!

    You are more than welcome to visit our class in Manhattan if you are interested in learning a combat oriented FMA system. Our Saturday class starts at 11:30am.

    Thanks Arnisador, I'll keep that in mind! I've been using my punching bag, but I may consider investing in a B.O.B.

    And I'll check out your studio once I move rich, it seems to be what I'm looking for.
